As part of our Australia Day celebrations we made damper to have after tea.
Damper is a traditional Australian food.
It is like a scone dough, used as a bread and traditionally cooked in the coals of a fire.
Being the middle of summer and with fire bans in place this was not possible but it still cooks nicely in a hot oven.
3 cups SR Flour
1/2 C milk
1/2 C water
Put flour and butter into food processor and mix until butter is mixed through flour.
While processor is still running pour in milk and water.
Process until a ball of dough is formed.
Need lightly and shape into a round loaf.
Place on a tray with baking paper and score the top with a sharp knife.
I scored mine into a Union Jack, this made it easy to break apart into 8 pieces.
Sprinkle top with some extra flour.
Cook in at 220C for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 180C and cook for another 15 minutes.
Cool for about 10 minutes before serving with butter and golden syrup.
Best served on the day it is made.
